Whilst we do expect the children to be disciplined and work hard towards their exams, we do not believe in putting them under undue pressure as we want them to enjoy their classes. By building up their work gradually on each grade, this enables all children to reach their fullest potential in examinations.
We also do Medal Tests, which we do alongside exam work. For younger children who are not yet old enough to do the exams, it gives them something to work towards and also gives them the experience of doing a 'test' in front of an external examiner. Medal Tests are invaluable in teaching children to really dance and perform, as much of the exam syllabi is exercise based.
Once every 2 years, we do a school show, and we include all children from Pre-Primary [4 years of age] upwards, regardless of ability, as we strongly believe every child should have the opportunity to perform on stage. We do not have the Baby Class in the shows as we feel at 2 and 3 years old they are too young. In between are the main bi-annual show, we are often asked to do short "displays" for various organisations and community events, in which we usually include some dances from the previous show.
